Phaneuf Preseason Hit

I am posting this out there in support and the my belief in the anti-Flyers conspiracy that exists in the NHL specifically with Colin Campbell the "Rules Czar". If you haven't seen it here it is Phaneuf puts Okposo out on a strecher following a flying shoulder to the head with Okposo looking the other way. I haven't read anything about a suspension but the hit reminds me of the Downie hit a couple of years ago that got him 25 games and pretty much cost him a spot with team. Here are links to both please let me know what you think I can see that the Downie hit might be a little worse but Phanuef still deserves at least 15 games for what he did based on the standards set by the Downie suspension. Please let me know if I am crazy at least Downie made 1st contact with MacAmmond's chest. Both MacAmmond and Okpose left on stretchers. Also if you think the Asham in the last game was dirty this is what he could have done if he had "intent to injure".

EDIT - NHL has reviewed the Phanuef hit and deemed it legal, no suspension except for the Islander that jumped of the bench to fight him.
